1:07 am
they have published some of these 100 alleged e-mails and texts. i don't know what you're smiling about because this is going to be most likely not only the end of a marriage but -- you know, forget those two. they agreed up front. they bargained for each other. but what about those children? >> right. >> you know, right now i could take a lot from my husband because i would not want to split up the family. with the children. but with these going public, i mean, hold on, tom. liz, let's take a look at a couple of these. these are in "in touch weekly's" this week edition. "i know it's brutal on you that you can't be with me all the time. i get it. it f-ing kills me, too. i finally find someone i can connect with. someone i have never found like this, not even at home. oh! oh! you want someone to witness your life. i want you to lay next to me, lay on me, or lay wherever you want to lay. f. why didn't we find each other
1:08 am
years ago? we wouldn't be having this conversation." next, "never thought i would care and be as emotional as i am with you. you bring a side of me i never thought existed, both good and bad. i don't like feeling so vulnerable. it bothers me a lot. i'm much tougher than this. i just want you to know what's going on inside of me." you know, they go on and on and on, tom o'neil. him calling her his soulmate, according to your article, talking about how he wished he had met her before he married his gorgeous, sweden supermodel wife and had two beautiful, healthy children. you know, before i thought, tom o'neil, that elin nordegren might say, okay, he had some flings. i'm not happy, i'm angry, but we're going to work it out. but you know, saying essentially he'd rather marry someone else other than her. where'd you get these things anyway? >> it was a third party gave
1:09 am
them to us. it's very important -- >> whoa. i didn't hear you. where did you get these? >> a third party provided them to us. >> a third party. >> rachel did not -- >> how did you get them from anybody but rachel uchitel? now i get why she thinks he's going to leave his wife for her. he basically said that. it's not all her chasing him. >> right. >> these e-mails -- >> here's what's significant, nancy. you're missing the point here. >> oh, okay. >> we have two gals. we have jaimee grubbs -- >> don't use gals. it's demeaning. they're grown women. >> okay. we have two alleged paramours here. okay? is that an okay word? and we have evidence of one of them, jaimee grubbs, that's the phone message we played a bit ago, but we have no evidence up till now for the first gal. rachel. >> you said it again. >> this is the source of the whole fight thanksgiving day between tiger and his wife, whether or not this tryst that they had in australia really went on when the tabloids broke the story. >> i'm going to go back to the first question that you have danced all around, tom o'neil, senior editor "in touch weekly." you say rachel uchitel, alleged
1:10 am
mistress number one, the new york party girl, she's been called. she's a hostess at a nightclub. didn't give you these e-mails. all right. then who hacked into her e-mail account? >> we don't disclose that, nancy. >> and get in the hands of you? >> we don't disclose that. but we do have lawyers who vet all the information that goes into "in touch" to validate all these things. so -- >> did you pay her? >> you know what? i really don't -- no. no, we did not pay her. we do not pay for editorial. we do not. >> then how do you say i don't know and in the same breath say no? >> well, no, because sometimes we pay for photographs. there is a distinction there. but "intouch weekly" does not pay for -- >> paying for photographs is the same thing as paying for interviews. you're putting perfume on the pig. >> we have no pictures, nancy. >> i don't want to talk about you and your policy. i want to talk about these e-mails. you're not going to tell me where you got them from. >> right. >> they either had to come from her to a third party to you or somebody hacked in. there. it's out there. all right. how many are there? >> we have several.
1:11 am
there are hundreds of these, of course, and text messages. and what's interesting is you can follow the story of the fight they have before they head to australia, before the tabloids catch them down there. and which of course leads up to the big blowup on thanksgiving day. >> okay. give me the timeline. you say that you can recreate. >> right. exact dates. i think was it november 9th. >> yep. >> the series of these e-mails take place where he first professes all this love for her. and then he starts telling her how jealous he is because she has told him in the past that she's also been romantically linked with four other celebrities. >> wait, wait, wait. put his face -- there he is. tom o'neil. >> okay. >> so you're telling me that tiger woods is mad at an alleged mistress because she's dated other people? >> right, right, right. some four other celebrities. he said that means you just probably want me for my fame. they end up having this big fight back and forth. and he says, well, let's not fight here, let's jump on a plane, go down to australia, have the fight there, and then have makeup sex.
1:12 am
1:13 am
1:14 am
1:15 am
what would you tell his wife, elin, if she was sitting right here? >> i mean, i have no words to explain, you know, what i have done to her, her family. i guess i would be deeply sorry for never considering her during the whole process and not -- him not bringing her up was just a way for me to pretend that he didn't have one and for me not to deal with it. but, i mean, i'm not going to ever say what i did was okay. and like, she knows she loved him and you know, that is the way i felt -- >> did you ever walk away? did you ever say i can't do this anymore? >> i never physically told him i couldn't do it anymore, but i did back away. you know, i did learn that he was having a second child, and at that point, you know, i just kind of thought to myself, what
1:16 am
am i doing? you know, this isn't right. you know, he has a wife, and it's not you. so i did. i tried to just fewer text messages and far in between and phone calls. there was a time where he did come out. he did physically come out for five days, and he texted me every day and said meet up with me, i want to see you, i miss you. and you know, i didn't do it. i was like, i'm not going to do that anymore. >> did you love tiger? >> i didn't ever say that i did love him. i wouldn't let myself get that far. >> do you think tiger loved you? >> there were times where i feel that, you know, he could have. but, i mean, if you were to ask me that question now, i would have to say he didn't. >> that is the cocktail waitress jaimee grubbs in the middle of an interview where she is
1:17 am
explaining why she thought tiger woods actually loved her, but now that she's heard about an alleged string of mistresses she's not so sure. well, you know what? how do you think his wife feels? i want to go back out to tom o'neil. you say there are hundreds of text messages and e-mails that now support all of these affairs or just the one affair with uchitel? >> well, jaimee grubbs has produced a number of text messages and other concrete evidence of her affair, which lasted, by the way, 2 1/2 years, nancy. you want outrage? this relationship began when tiger's wife was pregnant with their first child. >> you mean uchitel or grubbs? >> grubbs. the uchitel relationship is only 5 1/2 months old. >> i want to go to dr. lillian glass, psychologist, body language expert, author of "i know what you're thinking." lillian, when we first heard about this story and all these alleged mistresses, all of whom i don't believe, by the way, they sounded -- you're looking right now at texts from "us weekly" from woods back and forth to grubbs.
1:18 am
i didn't think the women had that much credibility. but now that i'm listening to uchitel and i'm listening to grubbs, they're extremely articulate. they're beautiful, obviously, physically beautiful. but they're not like bar flies or gold diggers. they seem like women who really thought he was going to leave his wife for them. >> nancy, they are gold diggers. and it's very interesting. especially rachel uchitel. if you look at an article she was interviewed for, it's called "black book" magazine, she said that she was looking for somebody very famous. she was looking for somebody very wealthy to help support her venture because she wanted to have a nightclub. she was using tiger in this regard. she has been playing him, and he fell for it. >> i want to point out that uchitel's fiance was killed in the september 11 attack in new york. she married after that.
1:19 am
it was a very brief marriage. nothing would work out for her after her fiance was murdered. and i'm not taking her side. i'm also pointing out to you, lillian glass, that none of these women have gotten any money or come forward until they started finding out about each other. i get the impression that they all thought they were the only ones, of course, in addition to the wife. >> yes. they were playing him. he was playing them right back. >> i'm not taking their side. what i am saying is he's the one that's married, not them. they don't have a duty to anybody but themselves. >> no, you're right. >> he has a duty. >> you're absolutely right. he has a big duty. >> what is this i heard that you said tiger woods is suicidal? i don't believe that for a minute. this man is not suicidal. >> well, you know what? it's not -- no, the bottom line is he doesn't have a lot of coping mechanisms at this point. this is a guy that's had everything done for him, everything done for him -- >> i don't know about that. he gave up a lot -- >> oh, he's had -- >> no, no, no. put glass up, please.
1:20 am
lillian glass, he started becoming essentially a professional athlete at age 5. he has done nothing but go to school and play golf and perfect his game. he has worked since he was a little boy. don't say he hasn't worked for anything. he's worked his butt off. >> i didn't say that, nancy. i didn't say he hasn't worked for anything. he had a lot handed to him. he had a lot handed to him and a lot done for him. absolutely. >> we were the first responding agency under mutual aid, which we have with orange county. when we arrived, we had a call of an accident with injuries. my two officers arrived at the scene and noticed tiger woods lying on the ground in front of his vehicle with his wife over him rendering first aid. my officers immediately exited their vehicles, went to mr. woods and began rendering first aid to him at that time.
1:21 am
1:22 am
1:23 am
1:24 am
what would you tell his wife, elin, if she was sitting right here? >> i mean, i have no words to explain, you know, what i have done to her, her family. i guess i would be deeply sorry for never considering her during the whole process and not -- him not bringing her up was just a way for me to just pretend that he didn't have one and for me not to deal with it. i'm not going to ever say what i did was okay. and like, she knows she loved him. and you know, that is the way i felt. >> did you ever walk away?
1:25 am
did you ever say i can't do this anymore? >> i never physically told him i couldn't do it anymore, but i did back away. i did learn that he was having a second child, and at that point, you know, i just kind of thought to myself, what am i doing? you know, this isn't right. you know, he has a wife, and it's not you. >> okay. now i'm seeing the new piercing jaimee grubbs describes in her text message to tiger woods. it's right here. that's where he allegedly -- if these text messages are to be believed, asked her to go into the bathroom while she's at work and take, let me just say, private photos of herself and text to him. i wonder if that, out to you, ellie jostad, is what his wife, elin nordegren, found just before the crash. >> well, nancy, there are conflicting reports about which texts or if elin woods found some text messages. some reports say that she caught him texting. she said, who are you texting? and it turned out to be rachel uchitel.
1:26 am
there are also these other unconfirmed reports that it was actually grubbs he was texting with. now "us weekly" claims that they have the text message, or they've seen one, where he e-mailed grubbs on thanksgiving and wished her a happy thanksgiving. >> to eloise parker with "ok!" magazine. in your magazine, eloise, thank you for being with us, you have an interview with rachel uchitel, the alleged mistress number one. in it she touches on tiger woods, but she does not talk about the alleged affair. why? >> that's right. that was one of the conditions on us sitting down with rachel. >> okay. did you pay her? >> i wasn't involved personally in the negotiations. so i can't confirm that. what i can tell you is our pockets certainly aren't as deep as tiger woods's. >> okay. that's being very coy, eloise. it sounds to me like you're saying yes but i can't confirm it, and tiger paid her more not to talk about it. is that what you're saying? just put it out, eloise. >> well, reading between the lines, nancy, that's certainly how it appears.
1:27 am
>> i'm not going to ever say what i did was okay. and like, she knows she loved him. and you know, that is the way i felt. >> did you ever walk away? did you ever say i can't do this anymore? >> i never physically told him i couldn't do it anymore, but i did back away. i did learn that he was having a second child. and at that point, you know, i just kind of thought to myself, what am i doing? you know?
1:28 am
1:29 am
1:30 am
what would you tell his wife, elin, if she was sitting right here? >> i mean, i have no words to explain, you know, what i have done to her, her family. i guess i would be deeply sorry for never considering her during the whole process and not -- him not bringing her up was just a way for me to just pretend that he didn't have one and for me not to deal with it. but, i mean, i'm not going to ever say what i did was okay. and like, she knows she loved
1:31 am
him. and you know, that is the way i felt. >> did you ever walk away? did you ever say i can't do this anymore? >> i never physically told him i couldn't do it anymore. >> that is from "extra," and that is alleged mistress number two, jaimee grubbs, describing how she was in love with tiger woods, thought he was in love with her. when you read their text messages, you can see why she thought that. although let me just point out she was with him 2 1/2 years and he never left his wife. so i don't know how realistic it is for her to claim she thought that. back to eloise parker with "ok!" magazine. this article with rachel uchitel is coming up in their "this week" edition. eloise, thank you again for being with us. what was the crux of her interview? she stayed mum on her alleged affair with tiger woods. >> well, that's right. we felt we had enough sources to back up the story. so what we were really interested in here was looking at the woman behind the headlines and digging into the personality of rachel uchitel. she invited us into her home, and we spoke with her. we wanted to know what makes her tick. >> everyone, let's unleash the lawyers.
1:32 am
in addition to tom o'neil, "in touch weekly," eloise parker, "ok!" magazine, and our chief editorial producer ellie jostad, with us tonight from l.a., alexis martin neely, family law attorney, raymond giudice, defense attorney out of atlanta, and doug burns, former federal prosecutor, now defense attorney in new york. first to you, ray giudice. ray, you know, a lot of divorces are purely emotional. for instance, i have literally known of a couple in divorce court who went to trial. it cost them thousands. over pots and pans. >> yep. >> and something to do with the dog. they went to trial. it probably cost them $50,000, $60,000 to go to a jury trial over that. so at one point if the wife elin nordegren says, okay, she rationalizes in her head, he had some affairs.
1:33 am
we should work on our marriage so it won't happen again. i'm going to stick it out. but now these e-mails, they are incendiary. just released, part of 100 e-mails and text messages in which tiger woods claims he's found his soulmate. he wishes he had met uchitel before he married and had children. this could push her over the edge. and i'm just wondering, will it nullify the prenup? >> tiger has multiple legal problems vis-a-vis his wife. that prenup is probably -- he's in pure violation -- >> i'm not paying for that advice. i know he has problems, giudice. >> let me address them. but here's his problems in a row. number one, this is a slam dunk no-fault divorce granted in her favor. he may lose a lot of custody of these children. a judge might find him to be an unfit parent. last issue is finances. he's going to dig out of a hole and be writing checks to her and those children for the rest of his professional career. so she's got them. this is an easy case for her lawyer. and tiger has done nothing to help repair this marriage. >> okay.
1:34 am
doug burns, what if the prenup, as i suspect it is, is ironclad? do all of these alleged affairs nullify a prenup? >> no, i don't think it would. the issues attendant to the ante nuptial agreement are whether or not the person understood the terms, read them all. i don't think the behavior's going to nullify it, per se. but in the real world i think that obviously there's a tremendous amount of public relations leverage, and i think that's going to translate into additional money for the wife. >> to alexis martin neely joining us from l.a. in prenups, prenuptial contracts which specify terms in the dissolution, or the divorce, dissolution of a marriage, alexis, can infidelity nullify a prenup? is it possible there is a clause in that prenup that states if one of us, woods or nordegren, have an affair all bets are off? >> it's possible. but knowing that tiger knew who he is and that apparently this has been going on for many, many
1:35 am
years, it would surprise me if he'd allow his lawyers to put that in. >> okay. speaking of many, many years, back to ellie jostad. ellie, reports are now surfacing that this past july, i believe it was, tiger woods was in scotland, i believe, at a golf event. and there are now reports that a domestic outbreak occurred over alleged affairs and the home in which they were staying, the private home was torn up, destroyed, allegedly by one of them? >> right. that's actually a "globe" magazine report. we can't confirm it. but the report is that while they were at the british open this past summer staying at this rented or borrowed home and some sort of argument broke out and there was apparently some damage. there are also reports that there's been trouble -- >> ellie, it didn't say some damage. it said it was destroyed on the inside. >> $16,000 worth of damage is what they're reporting. >> so michael gordon, ceo of the
1:36 am
gordon group in new york, crisis pr expert. and i would say this is a crisis, michael gordon. how do you keep $16,000 worth of damage to a private home secret? if it happened. i mean, every time somebody like lindsay lohan throws a bottle into a mirror at the chateau marmont or wherever she stays, we read about it. we hear about it. >> right. >> $16,000 damage? >> right. that's the whole issue, nancy. the truth is coming out. everyone just wants to get at the truth. "in touch" wants to get at the truth, "ok!" cnn, everyone just wants to get at truth. and that's the whole problem tiger is facing. he is not coming forward with the truth himself and take the gas out of everybody who wants to get at that truth. >> you know, michael, if these reports are true and now with the e-mails and the texts if they are corroborated, if they are for real, then it is true. >> right. >> would it be best -- i mean, why is he holed up on the yacht? other than having a goose egg on his forehead, maybe. >> right. it's an enormous mistake -- >> and please, don't tell me he should come out and say he's a sex addict?
1:37 am
don't even go there, gordon, because that is so tired. i've heard that from so many celebs that run around on their wives. yes, it's always the men. sorry, gentlemen. but nobody believes that. he can't come out and say he's a sex addict. >> right. no. he has to come out, admit what happened in his marriage, apologize to his fans, apologize to his wife. and if he's going to stay in the marriage he has to stop fooling around or he has to get out of the marriage. but that's the only way to start retaining the confidence of his fan base and his sponsors. but if he keeps staying silent, this story's going to keep getting bigger and bigger. you know what, nancy -- >> i think if he wants to hold on to his family and to his fans he's going to have to say, you know what, it's all true, and i was the biggest horse's ass on the planet to risk my wife and my children and my fans. for what? >> that's right. he -- >> i mean, no offense to the ladies. but for what? >> that's exactly right. he just needs to speak the
1:38 am
truth, and i think he can get past this. but every day that he doesn't talk is a lost opportunity. because he's such a big celebrity, everyone is interested. and he needs to change the name of his boat from "privacy" to "reality." >> very quickly to you, ray giudice. if, in fact, tiger woods did pay these women not to talk about the affair, when does that hush money become a bribe? >> only when you interfere with legal process or have someone do something that's illegal. right now there's no litigation. they're not in violation of anything. >> agree or disagree, doug burns? >> agree. normally, bribery is of public officials, public conduct. i don't see it here. i don't see it here. >> what about it, alexis? >> i agree. there's nothing illegal. >> i tried just fewer text messages and far in between and phone calls. there was a time when he did come out. he did physically come out for five days and he texted me every day and said meet up with me. i want to see you. i miss you. i didn't do it.
1:39 am
i was like, i'm not going to do that anymore. >> did you love tiger? >> i didn't ever say that i did love him. i wouldn't let myself get that far. >> do you think tiger loved you?
1:40 am
1:41 am
1:42 am
what would you tell his wife elin if she was sitting right here? >> i mean, i have no words to explain, you know, what i have done to her, her family. i guess i would be deeply sorry for never considering her during the whole process and not -- him not bringing her up was just a way for me to just pretend that he didn't have one and for me not to deal with it. i'm not going to ever say what i did was okay. and like, she knows she loved him. and you know, that is the way i felt. >> did you ever walk away? did you ever say i can't do this anymore? >> i never physically told him i couldn't do it anymore. but i did back away. you know, i did learn that he was having a second child, and at that point, you know, i just kind of thought to myself, what am i doing? you know?
1:43 am
>> that's an interview between "extra" and tiger woods's alleged mistress, mistress number two allegedly, jaimee grubbs. i want to go out to paul penzone, director of prevention programs, childhelp.org. he's a former police sergeant. paul, it's great to see you again. i want to ask you about one of my first questions to tom o'neil with "in touch weekly." they are the ones who know about these alleged 100 explosive e-mails and text messages. where could they possibly have come from? unless this woman, rachel uchitel, gave them to someone. her attorney is gloria allred. so gloria knows what she's doing. but unless uchitel gave these to somebody and had them published, how else could they have been obtained unless someone hacked into her accounts? >> well, i think you could look and say conspiracy theory, was someone in a position to go into her account without her knowledge, pull those things out, and turn them over for sale?
1:44 am
that's entirely possible. but if you really look at the big picture here, we'd be kidding ourselves to think it's not someone either close to her, a second party was handed off to and then handed off to the destination. it would just be naive of us to think that that was not the most likely scenario. there's all kinds of other ways to do it. technology can be your best friend or your worst enemy. but if you look at the totality of this situation and the money that's involved and everything else, i'd be real surprised if it wasn't just a hand-off to someone who handed it off. >> and back to you, ray giudice, usually when you're looking at a scenario like this the most obvious choice is the correct one. in other words, it did come from uchitel. although o'neil swears it didn't. it could have come through a third party. >> right. >> but the fact that nobody's been sued or there's no police report of someone hacking into her accounts says volumes to me. it says nobody did hack into her accounts. >> i think that's a good assumption. i think that's fair. however, a lot of people don't understand how easy cell phone records are to get, how people can throw cell phones away and if you don't take that chip out of it people can download your text messages.
1:45 am
>> i want to go to doug burns on another issue. his primetime ads have dried up. gatorade has discontinued the tiger woods drink. >> right. >> his ads haven't aired since right after thanksgiving, if i'm correct. doug burns, what do you know about morals clauses in contracts? >> well, morals clauses say if the person engages in conduct that is inimical to the brand and the image and the promotion then we have the right to cancel the contract. the other point i would make is he was represented, i'm so they probably negotiated it and battled back and forth in terms of how much room there would be to nullify it. but having said that, he's going to lose a lot of endorsements. >> i want to go back to dr. marty makary. he's a physician and professor of public health at johns hopkins. dr. marty, thank you for being with us as always. a lot has been made of the fact that a witness at the crash,
1:46 am
most likely his wife, told police he had been drinking that day before the crash and was prescribed ambien, a sleep pill, and a very powerful painkiller, vicodin. now, if he was dui, what kind of injuries would you have expected him to have to suggest there was a cover-up? >> well, you know, everybody who comes in after a motor vehicle crash in the emergency room is tested for blood-alcohol levels and also a standard toxicology screen. we don't know anything about that. what we do know is that there was a head injury because there was a claim that there was snoring at the scene, which is a sign of unconsciousness, and that the patient, tiger, this situation was taken into an icu overnight and admitted the next day. if somebody's discharged from a hospital after 24 hours, that
1:47 am
means they got a head scan, the head scan was negative, and the patient was released because of that. any other reason they'd be watched for a long period of time. >> now, are you saying it's s.o.p., standard operating procedures, for the hospital to take blood when somebody's admitted like this? >> because there's no way to assign fault from an accident or make a decision, a judgment call about who was involved and who was at fault, all motor vehicle accident victims get a standard toxicology and blood alcohol level in the emergency room. >> i want to go back to dr. lillian glass, psychologist, body language expert, author of "i know what you're thinking." lillian, i find it very odd that he is actually confronting one of the women in these alleged e-mails that she's dated other people in the past. he's married. >> exactly. again, he fell for her. >> look, lillian, before marriage, whatever. date everybody, anybody. date different people. whatever. but once you walk down the aisle, once you sign on the dotted line and have children, it's over.

>> i agree with you. and this is about his entitlement issues. he's tiger woods. he can have it all. and he thinks he can. but he can't. >> i want to go back to tom o'neil with "in touch weekly." tom, you and i have both seen his advertising dry up. i mean, it's kind of hard to sell the whole family man thing now. you've got buick. you've got a lot of family-oriented advertisers. i mean, he is an industry. tiger woods is an industry. he makes about $100 million a year and most of that is from endorsements. >> that's right. and if we look back to a point earlier this year when we saw another heroic sports figure, michael phelps, the olympic swimmer, get caught smoking marijuana, he lost the kellogg's account from that. but then i think there's another parallel here that may be even more appropriate. and that is five years ago kobe bryant was accused of rape, remember. and now, nancy, he's not only completely recovered his career, he is the second highest-earning sports figure in a tie with

michael jordan behind tiger woods. >> and kobe bryant's jersey is the number one seller in europe, fyi. to the lawyers, alexis martin neely, raymond giudice, doug burns. alexis martin neely, how would all these different affairs, if there is a prenup in place, of course, that was signed before children come along, do children being born nullify a prenup? and how do multiple affairs, if they happened, affect custody? could she take off and head home to sweden? we know she just closed on a family mansion back home in sweden. can she take the children away if she's got primary custody? when did he have time to be with all these women with two children? >> well, we don't know how much he was with his children but hopefully she won't take off no matter what. because regardless of these affairs, the most important thing for his children is that he have a relationship with his
1:50 am
children. >> how can they do that if n they're in sweden and he is on the pga tour? >> they have to get custody. she would have to get permission to do that. that's probably not going to be the case. if it was the case, hopefully she won't take the kids away from their dad. it's another issue to be addressed. >> everyone, quick break. but as we go to break, e we ask sincere sli for your thoughts and prayers for jack, who's just 8, and this beautiful boy is battling cancer. sweet boy, please stay strong. to send well wishes or donate, go to carin caringbridge.org/visit/campjack.

allegation that is tiger woods paid so-called hush money to various women and we see her giving an interview, refusing to talk about the alleged affair. how many women are auout there that allegedly have been paid off? >> that's a good question. there's ten alleged mistresses or affairs total. the allegations of payments to them are only about two or three. >> what about it, el wheeze parker with "ok"? >> yeah. that's what we're hearing today. another porn star. >> whoa, whoa, wait. did you say a second porn star? >> that's right, yes. which, that releases warning bells in my mind. i don't know. if there's an opportunist. call me wrong. it stinks to me. >> ellie, so far two women paid hush money. what do you know about it? >> right, right.
